The Security Project says
"The surface means as much as the songs."
All Music Guide on Peter Gabriel's 3rd record, Melt.

Members of King Crimson, Shriekback, and Gabriel's original band bring these genre-less masterpieces into the 21st Century. Seattleites Trey Gunn and Michael Cozzi join esteemed drummer Jerry Marotta and NY keyboardist David Jameson to harness the core of these songs. Added to the pedigree of these players is the voice of Brian Cummins, whose interpretations add haunting authenticity to the performances.

This live band is a first – no one has dared take on Gabriel's material at this level before.

Jerry Marotta says: “Peter was always great at setting the table for us as musicians; he always got us started with great ideas… As we were creating the SECURITY record we had no idea we were making something so unique… I’m proud that with Security Project we’re able to deliver the deepest of those songs, and do it with real conviction — playing them live.”

Marotta and Gunn first met when recording “The First Day” with David Sylvian and Robert Fripp in Woodstock, NY. Their friendship and musical partnership eventually led to The Security Project.

Says Trey, "This material is ridiculously special. Of course, Peter is a special artist. But the material on his first few records, especially the 3rd and 4th ones, are productions with no peer. The Security Project can really play these epic pieces. We bring the same level of detailed precision to the arrangments that are present in the originals. And then some. We not only play some of the pieces authentically, we also take many pieces and put our own twist on them. 'Here Comes The Flood" and the melding of 'Games Without Frontiers' with 'Of These, Hope' from 'The Last Temptaion of Christ' soundtrack are just two examples."
